Dan Swano Set To Record His Most Ambitious Work To Date: Edge Of Sanity’s “Crimson III”
Dan Swano is quite the renaissance man in the music world. From his straightforward death metal bludgeonment of Infestdead, to the avant-garde deathified trippy nature of Pan-Thy-Monium, to the progressive elegance of Moontower, he has proven himself a master of all things metal. That is to say nothing of his incredible work as a producer. Swano’s most epic works have been the 40-minute single song masterpieces “Crimson” and “Crimson II” from his band Edge Of Sanity. These two albums fail to get boring or dull despite their length. Now, according to none other than the prestigious Stockholm Music Register, Swano has entered the studio to record the third and final installment of the “Crimson” series.
The SMR reports that Swano will perform lead vocals, guitars, bass, drums, other percussion, keyboards, accordion, ukelele, banjo, bagpipes, harpsichord, tuba, French horn, oboe, cello, and trombone. Also, it has been reported that Busta Rhymes and Busdriver will contribute small rap pieces, and a mysterious musician named Earl will handle all other instruments. The album is going to blow away the other two “Crimson” albums in length, reportedly clocking in at just a couple seconds shy of 120 hours. In order to maintain the continuity of the song, it will only be available on a 16GB flash drive format.
We have also heard that Swano will be assembling a band to play this piece in its entirety in at least five cities worldwide. Early indications are that the performances will be held in Stockholm, London, Prague, Wacken, and of course the Pocatello Potato Bash in Idaho. He is apparently trying to find no less than 32 musicians for this endeavor who are gifted with ‘above average stamina and impeccable chops.’ The latter trait is said to have nothing to do with the facial hair of members of Eagles Of Death Metal, nor the world’s greatest pork chops at Mama Tasha’s in Missouri.
Will five straight days of epic avant-death metal trigger the end of the world? Is Dan Swano merely a Mayan prophet, or is he perhaps the ultimate heavy metal wunderkind? Will Batman make it out of the hot lava in time to hook up with Catwoman for a hero/villain rendezvous? Is fried chicken the ultimate food on the planet? By December, we hope to have all of these questions and more answered.
